Cannabis Licensing In The State Of California

Elijah Farley
Cannabis or weed as it is commonly known may seem to be some secret plant that farmers hide from drug agencies to avoid getting caught. The fact is that the crop grows from a seed just like any other crop in the field. A common view among all farmers is the purchase of the best type of seeds that will ensure the crops grow healthy. The same is the case for cannabis farming. Vendors go online to advertise the sale of seeds, although, it is something a farmer can try, the state of California has easier means of getting these viable seeds. There are areas organized particularly for you to the right starting gears and seeds.

A handful of cannabis farmers are

A handful of cannabis farmers are already having seeds that have sprouted in readiness for the planting season on a larger scale within the Mendocino area of California. The fact remains as to the possibility of more than 50% of these seedlings reaching full maturity due to unapproved licensing. Applications for a licence to grow cannabis with the last 10 months have seen less than 15% of such applications successful. It is recorded that there are about 10000 growers of the in-demand crop in the USA and the slow response limits the growth of these farmers and in a way limiting the region’s economy.

Viewing the possible potential that cannabis farming holds, a consultant from Southern California, Kelly Overton, has received the title of the cannabis program manager. The business has a few legal growers and many illegal farms, giving Overton the job of granting permission and also putting an end to any illegal process on ground. He will be in charge of all applications, and in actual sense, he will speed up the process of licensing or selection of applications in the region. The Mendocino county executive officers welcomed the development, saying they believe this will put an end to the illegal activities and focus more on making some economic benefits for the area.

Mendocino County is one of the more foreseeing counties in the province expanding strategies for growing of cannabis as a major supplier to the main economy. The recurring issue is to get the farmers to make their farms legitimate, a problem that seems to be around the state of California. There are many rules accompanied by huge taxes making, and with the industry being loose, it creates an avenue for illegal operations to thrive. Two lawmakers in the state recently suggested a plan to slash the tax rate by 4%, arguing that the high rate is the reason the illegitimate business is booming.

The Mendocino region growers have the third-highest number of temporary planting licenses so far handed out from the California Department of Food and Agriculture. As of June 11, the state had handed out 532 permits in Santa Barbara County, 491 permits in Humboldt County and 349 in Mendocino County. These licences are legal for 120 days, after which all applicants must submit evidence of local authorization for the crops. From collated data, growers with temporary state permits come from 25 of 58 California counties. This slow rate of licencing is clear in the Sonoma region, where regional authorities have given just three applicants permission to grow cannabis.
